Comments
Comments: Trails to both South Carter and Carter Dome are well established monorail. Wore spikes the entire route. I was thinking of going down to Carter Notch but that only had a solo set of tracks and I did not have my crampons with me. Next time! Hight was worth the detour and is also fine but has 2-4" of snow on it. I did not break through but could use a team of snowshoers to really pack it. Ran into a lot of nice folks today enjoying the cloudy and windy but temperate day.
